From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3. In a return to the traditional after a recent incarnation as a Jack tale in Joanne Compton's retelling (Holiday, 1995), this hardy perennial of the storytellers' repertoire has its singsong back. The family?old man, old woman, little girl, little boy and the squirrel?found in Richard Chase's Grandfather Tales (Houghton, 1973)?is intact, as is the ditty, "Sody, sody, sody sallyratus." The gist of the story is that the old woman can't make biscuits because she's out of sody sallyratus (baking soda), and one by one, each character goes to fetch it and is swallowed by a bear. When even the old woman fails to return, the squirrel sets off, tricks the bear, who disgorges the family and they all return home for breakfast. Sloat deals more gently with the bear than did tellers of old. The appeal of the story is its wonderful repetition and rhythm that can lure even the shyest listener into chanting along. The folksy, autumnal drawings create a mountainside settlement filled with cheerful rawboned people, curiously irritable animals, and whimsical flora. Text is set off by twig-and-leaf frames. The last page contains a biscuit recipe and a note about the many uses of baking soda. The simplicity and repetition of the story make it good for young groups. Its driving inevitability makes it the sort of tale that draws novice tellers; its continuing appeal is affirmed by the two recent picture book treatments?and the success of both approaches affirms the elasticity of the oral tradition.?Sally Margolis, formerly at Deerfield Public Library, IL
